Artist Workshop – Christopher Cook – Sat 12 Oct 2019

Date: Saturday 12 October 2019, 10:30 am - 4:00 pm
Venue: York Art Gallery

This experimental workshop with artist Christopher Cook will introduce collage techniques developed by the Surrealist movement that also influence his work in the current exhibition, Making a Masterpiece: Bouts and Beyond.

Whilst the advent of software such as Photoshop has
largely overtaken such physical strategies, his workshop will  emphasise its relevance, especially to interactive group activities, as a means to unlock the imagination and open up new narratives.

Please note that the event is 10.30 am – 12.30 pm and 2 pm – 4 pm.

Fee is included in gallery admission but please, book through our events page here.
